I dozed through the early parts of the day. At 4. p.m. Jackie set me up on Mum’s perching stool at a vantage point beside the bricked-in well, and I emerged, blinking, into strong sunlight to the sweet, sonorous, symphonies of vibrant birdsong.

While she continued to labour away in the sweltering heat, I perched and photographed what met my eye. When she caught me standing unaided and shifting the stool to give me a better angle down the Brick Path, she exclaimed: “I’m sure I can’t allow that.”

My choice of this evening’s ready prepared meals was suitably bland cod mornay with mashed potato and peas.

  1. Jackie has such a talent for making every square centimetre of her garden interesting to the senses……. the colour and texture are obvious in your photos, and I bet there are sounds to accompany it all too! Being immobilised has its blessings it appears. I did give a chuckle at her comment over your attempts at independent movement! Bland food however, is not what you are used to!

  2. That is very protective of Jackie. My vote is strongly with her. Nonetheless, your enthusiasm is infectious. Out here the mercury has been surging past 45 Β°C on a regular basis and my new DSLR is aestivating like a snail in a wooden crevice. Meanwhile, our Homemaker has issued a stringent advisory against all such enterprises…

  3. Your photographs have an more intimate feel to them. You should confine yourself to one spot more often. πŸ™‚

  4. I suspect I’m in a minority here but I feel it would be much more fun if Jackie put you on a shooting stick. You’d have to behave then, or fall off.

    The garden is looking beautiful. It’s a pity Jackie can’t work some of her magic on you. πŸ™‚

  5. Looking at your garden Derrick, are you certain you did survive the operation and haven’t died and gone to Heaven ???
    You have a lot to be proud of in the creation of such a beautiful colourful haven of visual pleasure.
